Timber Rattler’s Terra Preta Fixed Blade Knife boasts few frills, opting for raw cutting power, exceptional hand feel and quiet beauty. Its 3” 1095 Damascus steel blade is a whirlwind of inky lines - the result of an ancient metalworking technique that involves hammering red hot, fire forged steel into hundreds, even thousands of folds before a final acid etching. Such intricate details can only be achieved by the skilled hands of a master metalsmith - not automated punches or presses. Carefully honed to a razor sharp edge, the drop point blade is perfect for skinning, carving and other delicate tasks. That’s not to say it can’t slice and cleave its way through more demanding cutting jobs; if the “Terra Preta” is anything, it’s versatile. The deep onyx black buffalo horn handle beautifully complements the rippling dark likes on the Damascus blade. It’s gently contoured, which - along with the Terra Preta’s impeccable balance and weight distribution - affords superb handling. At 7” long overall, the Terra Preta is great for outdoor adventures. It doesn’t consume much precious limited space or add excessive weight to your gear, but it’s amply sized to tackle a host of wilderness cutting tasks. Properly cared for and housed in the included genuine leather sheath, Timber Rattler’s Terra Preta Fixed Blade Knife will last a lifetime and beyond, making it a distinguished family heirloom you’ll be proud to pass down for generations. Use it or display it; it’s ideal for both! The Terra Preta also makes a wonderful, memorable gift for a knife collector, outdoorsman or anyone who appreciates fine craftsmanship and attention to detail.
